BlogHer 12 Pictorial Highlights

Since I haven’t had a chance to blog about BlogHer 12, I thought I would just do a quick pictorial post highlighting the weekend.  Starting with Times Square, of course:

The two best roommates ever, Elle of Blue Monkey Butt (left) and Anne of Small Town Mommy (middle):

Having the honor of meeting Denise (right) from Run DMT in person:

The People’s Party where a giant bowling pin even danced with our mascot monkey our roommate Elle brought along for the ride:

Martha Stewart’s Keynote Luncheon – wish I could have actually met her and gotten a picture with her, but I was too shy to approach her:

The SocialLuxe Party of fun – thanks again so much for nominating me for the Smile Award and voting me into the 20 finalists.  I didn’t win, but it was such a humbling honor to be nominated:

My two roomies playing the Disney Dance Wii Game:

The long line of people waiting to get into the Hasbro Party in the heat:

The awesome Sparklecorn Cake:

Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman):

The lovely Lindsay Ferrier – founder and hostess of the infamous CheeseburgHer Party:

I decided to get creative with my cheeseburger and glow sticks:

And finally, our pile’o’luggage as getting ready to depart New York with Anne keeping watch:

It was a hot and humid whirlwind weekend – so many people in one location, in spite of the fact I don’t like big crowds I had a great time.  Just wish I wasn’t so shy so I could have met some of the bloggers I’ve seen in the blogosphere that I recognized but was too shy to approach them and say hi.  Maybe next time.

  1. I had too much on my plate to attend BlogHer this year, which kind of sucked because I love New York! Maybe next year – I’ve never been to Chicago.

  2. Did you at least get a chance to say “hi” to The Bloggess? She, along with Laura Mayes, hosted the first get-together where I was introduced to the whole idea of meeting fellow blogger-people in real life (who woulda thunk?)

    Happy WW! And, if BlogHer ever comes to Houston, maybe I can even make it!


  3. Wow, looks like a whirlwind time. I’m glad your smile got nominated, because you’ve really got a good one.
    Love what you did with the glow sticks. You’ll appreciate this one for Halloween: Cut different shaped “eye” holes into old paper towel tubes. Place glow sticks inside, and leave them spaced out in shrubbery that leads up to your front door.

  4. I was in that Hasbro line, and I was at Social Luxe! Oh why didn’t we meet?!!!! We must make plans to meet next year, for sure! (assuming you’re going.)

  5. Pingback: Saucy Sausalito…..California Part 3

  6. Loved your pictures and re-cap. I ended up not attending and was super bummed to not be able to meet you!!!! Looks like you had so much fun. It’s so exhausting, isn’t it?

  7. Would you belive I lived in New York for four years, but have never been to New York City?! But, I was just a kid and not in control of our destinations. Looks like you had a fantastic time! :>

  8. Looks like you had a great time anyway. Since, I will walk up to just about anyone and say just about anything how about next year I go with you. Then you will have no reason to be shy.

  9. Oh wow! What a surprise to link up for WW and find my face on your blog! lol You are absolutely adorable. I am honored to be included in your BlogHer 12 highlights and it was such a pleasure meeting you. It was like meeting an old friend. Can’t wait until our paths cross again!

  10. Great pics! Nice to see them and all the fun we had! Of course, you look fabulous in all of them! and you should have won!

  11. I have GOT to do better next year (Chicago or bust!) with knowing who’s going. I so would have found you (and searched your bag for wine) had I known you’d be there.

  12. You are too cute!
    I wonder if we even walked past each other or bumped into each other. Ahhh….the mystery continues….

    I’m just stopping by to snag some links for the Friday Linky.

  13. What fun. I had hoped to go but my sponsor fell through. Hoping it will make it to the west coast again. Next year we are on a cruise the same time as BH…so will have to wait until the following year. Maybe Blissdom! 🙂

  14. Great photos… looks like you had a fantastic time.
    I would never be able to go to one of those, I just cannot handle all those people in one place. Not to mention I’m scared to death of NYC, HaHa.
    I aknow you really wish you had met Martha Stewart – that’s one thing I really would have loved to do, too.
